Sexual Harassment

In accordance with section 345 of the Sri Lankan Penal Code, unwelcome sexual advances by a person of authority in a working place are considered sexual harassment. The perpetrator of harassment may be punished either with imprisonment up to a term of five years, or with fine, or both. He/she may also be ordered by the court to pay an amount, as determined by the court, to the victim of harassment for injuries.
